Here we are, July 4, 2013, two hundred and thirty-seven years from the day the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. On the first anniversary, July 4, 1777, in the nation’s capital of Philadelphia, prayers, parades, speeches, fireworks, and thirteen gun salutes were executed in celebration.
The National Geographic Channel has teamed up with Harvey Weinstein, conservative-loathing filmmaker, to create a movie titled SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden. The purpose of the movie is to focus and highlight Obama’s role in the killing of Osama bin Laden. The movie is to air on the eve of the election, but Howard Owens National Geographic;’s CEO stated that they “weren’t considering the election, and there is no political inference or connection regarding the timing of its air-date.”
There are very few contemporary or historical organizations as racist as congressional race-based caucuses.
Memorial Day is our national holiday to remember the men and women who died protecting this country in the service of the United States Armed Forces. If a member of the military died protecting this country, that member is a hero. In a society of the patriotic and the conscientious, Memorial Day would not be a day of division, politics, or ideological anomaly. This is a day set aside for this country to put divisions, politics, and ideological anomalies aside, and join together in reconciliation, if just for this one day, and pay tribute and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their county: death. Memorial Day is a day about heroes, and those deserved of the title.
Harvard Law School Professor Einer Elhauge published an article in The New Republic titled, “If Health Insurance Mandates Are Unconstitutional, Why Did the Founding Fathers Back Them?” The foundation of his argument is the belief that the Militia Act of 1792 was a mandate to purchase a firearm, and the 1790 and 1798 acts by Congress requiring that ship owners purchase medical insurance for seamen, was a mandate forcing the citizens of the states to make a commercial purchase under the Commerce Clause.
While they are knitting uteruses and female nether regions, I am knitting dollars: but more on this subject later.
Why are they continually trying to convince me that minorities are incompetent, unable to perform the simplest of tasks that their Caucasian counterparts can, and just plain lazy? They have also convinced minorities that they are incapable of functioning, or navigating society and the various whatnots of existence without their chivalrous assistance, and the price is small–just their vote.
No provision of our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience against the enterprise of the civil authority. –Thomas Jefferson
Alejandrina Cabrera wants to serve the citizens of San Luis, Arizona; she is running for a seat on the city council. This fledgling parliamentarian’s hopes and dreams of shepherding the citizenry into the 21st century, contributing at city council meetings through various avant-garde channels of communication such as articulating her thoughts and ideas via charades, nodding and shaking her head when it seemed appropriate, perhaps even employing an interpreter, were unceremoniously ceased and desisted. It was the highest of judicial authority for the state of Arizona, the Arizona Supreme Court, which applied, with prejudice, the legal kibosh on her campaign. Sadly, Alejandrina has been legally barred from serving as an elected official in the state of Arizona.
According to scientists, about 4 billion years ago, a soupy mixture of non-living protein based enzymes spontaneously and miraculously sprang into a form of life known as prokaryotes. From this soupy goop, man did come, evolving first into a monkeyish form with an affinity for climbing trees, scavenging for food, and busy racing to the top of the food chain. Fast forward a couple of billion years to the current state of American politics, and the argument that man is speeding down the highway of de-evolution possesses more credibility than it does kookiness.
